Beginnings 
The artist aimed to express and record the moment of élan vital that only life can possess, sometimes delicately and sometimes boldly.
A person’s emotions are like temperature and humidity, wind and light, a connected chain of moments, and the meetings of colors facing all of these. Perhaps it is not that emotion is awakened with the essence of life, but that the power of the essence of life is awakened by the emotion.


The reason for expressing the interaction with a horse as élan vital is because a horse’s strength transcended spiritual power from the very beginning of life before the development of intellect and allowed human desires to fly freely. The project’s unique view of the motif isn’t limited to being a simple subject of observation; it is also the symbolized image of élan vital. This in itself is the emotion of human and beast, nature and civilization, and mythology and present.
